about

They say a single flutter of the wings of a butterfly can cause a typhoon half way across the world...

This EP is a small collection of some of my work written over the past year or so of my life.

Syred's work is a baffling entity that constantly blows my mind and everyone else's whom come into contact with it....you are an endless source of wonderment and inspiration for me and one of my oldest and best friends, thank-you Louie.


Aime is my big sister and has inspired me ever since I was old enough to listen. Your lyrics and song writing are some kind of genius and your soul is one of the most beautiful things I've ever had the pleasure of being around, Thank-you Aim's


Caitlin's voice is like that of an angel, as is her heart and her soul. Your beautifully complex mind has inspired me from the day I met you and I'm sure will continue to do so for the rest of my days, Thank-you Caitlin.

Track Name: The Sea
I need to breath again
Before my shoulders cave in
Im feeling weaker each day
I think i've given all my strength away

In the Sea you will find me
let her waves wash over my skin
Im trying to pull the sky from the horizon
And I wont stop until she lets me in

Like a pebble pulled into the ocean
or a feather dragged away by the wind
I need to set my wheels into motion
cos the stagnancy is wearing thin

Untied strings hold me up make me stronger
But its the tide that will pull me away
and i'm afraid if i breath to deeply
Then I might just blow it away

***

In the Sea you will find me (i see it all i feel it all)
let her waves wash over my skin (let them wash me down)
Im trying to pull the sky from the horizon (Ill pull it down)
And I wont stop until she lets me in

(i see it all i feel it all)
(let them wash me down)
(Ill pull it down)
Track Name: Exit Wounds (Ft. Caitlin Stubbs)
Cold house...seek not what you wish to hide
As our binds grow weak... Within your walls i've lost my mind
The bitter sweet taste of defeat
Hangs stagnant in my mouth so ill swallow it whole and retreat
You cant get where you want be, if your tucked up with complacency
Now you've made your own

My methods surrounding me
Holding my captive in my hole...I sleep
But Im scared to open up my heart, but for why?... Im not to sure

My methods surrounding me
Holding my captive in my hole...I weep
But Im scared to open up my heart, but for why?... Im not to sure


You thing you've found your self?
Hold your breath and let that go
Theres more to be learned the answers closer than you know
We've all been torn apart answers scattered across tomorrow
So keep your eyes peeled and mind open
One day it will all come tumbling home.


Bowled out...but soon I know ill rise
I feel my spine grow weak and I fear soon it will let go
Fear slots in just beneath your chin like a blade
But pride will prop your head up high
Hold me to that, just know you exit wounds will leak out most of whats inside

(But Still My)

Methods surrounding me
Holding my captive in my hole...I sleep
But Im scared to open up my heart, but for why?... Im not to sure

My methods surrounding me
Holding my captive in my hole...I weep
But Im scared to open up my heart, but for why?... Im not to sure



You thing you've found your self?
Hold your breath and let that go
Theres more to be learned the answers closer than you know
We've all been torn apart answers scattered across tomorrow
So keep your eyes peeled and mind open
One day it will all come tumbling home.
Track Name: Take Flight
If my souls forgotten then at least ill have my words to stand for me
And if i cant be heard Ill put my chances on the wings of a butterfly

I can feel the wolves of winter clawing at my skin
I hear the wolves of winter howling in the wind


Batten down the hatches of this storm will take us all
Its going to hurt, I've seen it all before
Hold onto your hat but promise me just one thing more,
You'll spread your wings butterfly and take flight
before we get too old

Here I go once again
I've lost myself in my head again
And Im trying to pretend
That everything alright

We know, we're the children of the enemy
and life isn't always quite as it seems
As the winter falls across this land
my spirits caught adrift on the midnight breeze


But still the wolves of winter clawing at my skin
I hear the wolves of winter howling in the wind


Batten down the hatches of this storm will take us all
Its going to hurt, I've seen it all before
Hold onto your hat but promise me just one thing more,
You'll spread your wings butterfly and take flight
before we get too old

(Spread your wings, butterfly, and take flight)

The frost will bite but thy sting not sharp
it will cost your life if you think too hard



Batten down the hatches of this storm will take us all
Its going to hurt, I've seen it all before
Hold onto your hat but promise me just one thing more,
You'll spread your wings butterfly and take flight
before we get too old

Track Name: Wings (Ft. Syred)
I've hit a brick wall in my current position
I knew this day would come but wouldn't have thought it be this soon
trying to find a hole, or a crack in the concrete confines of the wall
Strings snap under alteration
so I tread gently, bide my time and be patient
But thats starting to wear thin
Its time to brush the water off my wings

Wings, (aah), Wings (aah)

So ill stand strong face to face with the wall I've wound
And stitch by brick ill tear it to the ground


Im stood still, stuck without a rhyme nor reason
my hands and feet are bound to the path i'm leading
Its like i'm not fulfilling the life I feel I ought to be
Im trying to find the means to progress...thats why I walk alone
It keeps the wheels in motion
Ironic i know...but it keeps my vision in focus
But thats starting to wear thin
Its time to brush the water off my...

Wings, (aah), Wings (aah)

So ill stand strong face to face with the wall I've wound
And stitch by brick ill tear it to the ground

(Syred)
It seems the things you think will lead to something
always lead to nothing
and the things you wont consider
show for bigger repercussions
It doesn't really matter weather it positive or negative
the simple fact that you carried hope, acted as a sedative
clouded you perspective, as it shrouded your incentive
and in turn meant you were not able to achieve your objective.

For every wall that I hit, my helmet is wearing thiner
Ain't a cushion thats pushing against the bruise on my cranium
the walls I keep on breaking them, the damage I withstand
socio-psychological the barrier still stands
Like how does it feel man, to be one of many?
plenty others have tried but, plenty have still found
that they are just another one, a brick in the wall
but now Its time to brush the water off my...

Wings, (aah), Wings (aah)

So ill stand strong face to face with the wall I've wound
And stitch by brick ill tear it to the ground
Track Name: Eye Spy (Ft. Aime Harper & Syred)
I spy, through my closed eyes, fools whom stride among the wise
Reaching out to claim their place in equity
Spin your web but spin it strong, Hold your breath and dance along
But the storm WILL come and it wont be long now....
If we could trade lost time for an extra day
would the seconds be like minuets and the house like days?
would materialistic minds deliver us from glory?
So bottle up your past in and arsenal, cos after all your hearts not full until the scars are formed
Use you pain as the ink in life's pen to write your futures story


Ice caps in my heart
Tryna fill a hole now fill a hole now
Ice caps in my heart
They form a melted soul, trying to fill a hole now

(Aime Harper)

As a young girl I could see, the beauty that surrounded me
The beauty of the nature kept me humble
Well I grew older, like you do, and marched to a beat thats not in tune
And then I found my peace in a concrete jungle
all the madness kept me sane, you realise life just a game
and every now and then things start to crumble
Step by step, I play the game, like a pawn stepping out on a board of pain
Collecting pieces to help me when I stumble


Ice caps in my heart
Tryna fill a hole now fill a hole now
Ice caps in my heart
They form a melted soul, trying to fill a hole now

(Syred)



But parts of me despise those crooked times
but its those time that give you strength when it feels the worlds left you behind
we cascade through life in search for piece-of-mind
But life's too short....so forgive and just move on

Ice caps in my heart
Tryna fill a hole now fill a hole now
Ice caps in my heart
They form a melted soul, trying to fill a hole now

Ice caps in my heart
Tryna fill a hole now fill a hole now
Ice caps in my heart
They form a melted soul, trying to fill a hole now
